Current project

I am an eighth grade student that is working on an independent project for school. We each get to chose our own topic and i chose mine to be about gleaning. I wanted to start gleaning on Mercer Island, and thought about gleaning from the pea-patch on the Island and giving it to the food bank at MIYFS. I have made some progress and have gotten support from some pea-patchers, but was wondering if their is anyone else that would like to join. Let me know if you are interested!
